A hearty breakfast always sets me up for the day and this week I decided to trade in my usual bowl of Shreddies and thought to myself it was a day for a Full English breakfast.
I decided to visit the Bread & Bitter which can be found housed in a former bakery and nestled away on Mapperley Top. The Bread & Bitter has been serving the local community as a Castle Rock pub since 2007.
It is clearly popular with tradespeople and locals who seemed like regulars.
There’s a large choice on the menu, including a wide range of breakfasts, snacks, main courses, sandwiches, pizzas as well as a kids menu.
The menu also provides a range of options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free diets and it was evident that a lot of thought regarding dietary requirements had gone into their menu.
I went with the meat version of the Full English that is priced at £8.95 and for under nine quid you get a pot of tea, toast, beans, two sausage, two bacon, hash brown, mushroom, tomato and an egg.
Condiments were provided in a basket containing salt, pepper, HP sauce, Heinz ketchup and butter.
Everything was lovely, the sausages were meaty, the bacon smoked, the hash brown crisp and the egg had a delicious runny yolk. The tea even came with one of those little biscuits in the red packet.
The Full English Breakfast (meat version) was lovely in terms of quality and price, and when combined with the superb customer service from the two welcoming ladies on duty I had already decided before I finished that it would not be too long before I came back again.
You can find the Bread & Bitter at 153-155 Woodthorpe Drive, Mapperley, Nottingham, NG3 5JL
